For those that find it difficult to make themselves heard: we have another voice and through it, our mind lets us sing.

My voice:

Meek and feeble,

It's locked up without choice.

Over there, Paranoia reigns king.

Face to Face,

My forlorn voice,

Fails to keep up the pace.

Over there, frustration is mounting.

But with pen and paper,

Dwelling alone,

 My voice rings loud and clear.

Here, perhaps I too can be a king.

Months. Years.

Many have passed,

But only now revelation appears:

Here, my voice is not afraid to sing.
